Look What I Just Found!

Apparently everything was just fine on the econo-financial front until a mere year ago when a mysterious disease or something broke out on Wall Street.

Business books, it seems, are beyond parody.

The worst, however, was a book called "The Way of the Cockroach", in which would-be CEOs were explicitly instructed to behave like vermin.  Apparently there is nothing so contemptible that a business writer will not stoop to . . . telling other people to imitate.

Come to think of it, I may have found an explanation for the last twelve months . . .
Yes, Megan, only in the last twelve months have the titans of industry & finance been interested in acting like cockroaches. 

"Beyond parody," indeed. Gah!!
